Water Colour Bouquet

Hello once again. I spent so much time crafting over the weekend that I have another card to share today:

I stamped the Woodware ‘Fresh Cuts‘ stamp and heat embossed in black onto water-colour card, then used my Altenew water-colour pan set for the light pink, dark pink, and green.

The sentiment is from MFT – a much loved and well used stamp set, which was actually a freebie sometime last year from Seven Hills Crafts.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

CAS Water-colour – CAS water-colour and bouquet

Just Us Girlspink, dark pink, green

AAA Birthdaybirthday for the girls

Seize The Birthdaybirthday with option of rainbow (not using the option)

Vintage Cut Rose

Hello there, everyone. I have a couple of cards to share with you today, with the only difference between the two is the colour of the embossing, and the colour of the flower itself:

A little close-up of the gold embossing:

I used a new stamp set to me, the Thirsty Brush and Co ‘Vintage Cut Rose‘. I didn’t know it was a rose when I did it, but looked at the web site for the name of the stamp set when putting this post together.

I wanted to play with my water-colours so I stamped and embossed the image – one gold and one black – then took my Altenew water-colour pan set and played.

I didn’t want the flower colours to be one colour, so I did the blue and purple for one flower, and red, orange and yellow for the other. The leaves are a combination of three greens – I think – but I was just playing.

Previously I have been scared about mixing colours to not get brown (!!) Still playing and practising…………..

The panel is die-cut with one of my favourite Catherine Pooler die sets, and the background paper on each is from my stash of Stampin Up DSP.

I shall be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
